Re: More security is a good thing
Correct, most of the stuff in EMET isn't new.
However, as I have mentioned before, if MS enabled all the features by default in a normal Windows security update then all the improperly written software (current or legacy) in the world would stop working overnight.
Then MS would get a tidal wave of criticism for having too much security and stopping people using their badly written software.
Damned if they do...
